ALONE

His father was a dead beat, left him in a heart beat
Left him with no shoes, bare feet
He was just ten years old thinking daddy going to come back home
Father almost beat mom to death, wore his wife beater with blood on his chest
He loved the day when his father went to prison
Thinking when they hand-cuffed him, he will learn a lesson
He looks at his arm, looks at his scars
He looks at his dad trying to find love
Father looks at his son, his only one
Anger builds up inside, thinking what have I done
